the price hugely depends on the record and the state it's in

@ Dianne: you remember "cowboy hats" - when a record was so warped it would seem to undulate in waves as it went around the turntable?
haha..Nope...we respected ours...(just made that up).. had to give up our comics when we first got a record player of this type..made a deal with our late Dad..so our comics paid for the instalments of whatever it was weekly...records we wanted to buy we earnt though doing choirs...

Most brand new reissues or new releases run about $20-$40 but lots of labels are going the "limited color run" route and releasing a bunch of limited edition stuff, usually on colored vinyl, and charging an arm and a leg. Then the resale after that is insane.

Vintage records vary by rarity and condition. I sell 15 records for $10 in my bargain room and I also sell single LPs for hundreds of dollars.

This is what I mean. Back in my day (yawn I know) you had prices for single albums, double albums and basically that was it. You'd pay more for limited stuff - a Japanese import or a picture or shaped disc - but other than that, all more or less the same price. Now it varies so much it seems a little insane. I bet there are records out there for major money that I could very well have here beside me on my shelf.

Ha ha! I had one of those, though the casing was red!

I have a collection of about 50 LP's, most of which date from my teens (and a few early 20's). Growing up, my house had 2 record players: A crappy one in one of my sister's bedrooms, and a good one in our living room. I was so protective of the quality of my LP's I put the following label on at least half of them.

Picture below is CSN's Daylight Again album with my warning.

I haven't listened to any of these albums since the 90's.

Forcing someone to give up their comics to get music is pure evil. I'd have come at him with a butcher knife. You ain't taking my Spider-Man from me.

Lifting the stylus, checking if there was any fluff on it, if so blowing it gently off before lowering the needle?

The annoyance when you accidentally hit into the record player and the album would skip? Turning the album over when side one ended to hear the other side? Flicking through boxes/racks/shelves of albums in your local second-hand record store looking for bargains? Decorating the inner sleeves with your own art? Learning all the lyrics? Admiring the cover art? The smell of the inside cover of a gatefold album?

Share your vinyl memories, from a time when playing an album was more than just selecting a file or pressing play on your ipod, when listening to music was a real pleasure and quite the ritual, when once you'd bought an album you'd listen to it many times as that was the only new one you could afford.

I suppose I'll never go back to vinyl, but it's nice to think of those days.
My first music vinyl was a Slade album, ah the memories!

Still digging music any way I can - album-wise it has been checking out the Brown Acid collections and grooving on what colored vinyl I have as well as David Bowie's second album and several used finds. I still have plenty of CDs and even stream. More later, I just wanted to say something.
